California Stage Presents: Radio Drama with Third Age Onstage

Enjoy live radio drama presented on stage!

Third Age Onstage, a radio drama group, will perform Alive in the Grave and Scott Fitzgerald’s The Diamond as Big as the Ritz this month in the Wilkerson Theater at the R25 Arts Complex, home of California Stage.

In the first story, Alive in the Grave, a wife’s ultimatum to her unemployed husband results in the robbery of a dead man and the grave he now occupies.

The next story, Scott Fitzgerald’s The Diamond as Big as the Ritz, is a fantasy considered one of his best short stories. In it, a young man accepts an invitation from his new classmate to spend the spring break with his family “out west.” Expecting it to be a typical rugged ranch, he finds instead a palatial setting, and even falls in love before he finally realizes that his very life is on the line.

Both are performed each day:
Saturday, May 18, 7:00 pm and Sunday, May 19, 2:00pm.

In the Wilkerson Theater:
1725 25th Street, 95816 Continue reading

California Stage Presents: ‘Times Like These’

California Stage presents John O’Keefe’s new play, “Times Like These,” October 19th through November 18th.

Times Like TheseCalifornia Stage will present playwright John O’Keefe’s new play, Times Like These, at the California Stage in the R25 Arts Complex, 25th & R St.

The play takes place in Hitler’s Berlin between 1934 and 1938. It is a play about Meta Wolff, Germany’s most famous actress, who is banned from the stage because she is a Jew. She attacks the only way she can: through her actor-husband, Oskar Weiss, whom she directs behind the scenes in a production of “Hamlet” to boldly satirize the Nazi regime.

It stars Gary Wright (AEA) and Lois Masten-Ewing, and is directed by Richard Winters.

The production plays Fridays & Saturdays at 8PM and Sundays at 2PM, October 19 to November 18, 2018. Tickets are $15-20.
